slowing anything down or causing too big a problem there. let's look at mass transit before i go. amtrak, septa, new jersey transit, and patco transit running on time this morning. 6:02. here are the headlines -- the white house says it plans to cut subsidies for health care insurers. the announcement came just hours after president trump signed an executive order that could unravel obamacare without a congressional repeal. the plan allows insurance companies to sell cheaper policies with less coverage than the affordable care act requires. democrats say the president's moves will hike premiums for everyone. a major closure on the pennsylvania turnpike. it will be closed from the allentown to the pocono exits for the entire weekend. crews will be replacing a bridge at mile marker 57. the closure begins tonight at 9:00. it will last until 4:00 monday morning. the eagles are on a roll. carson wentz throwing through
touchdown bosses. the defense forces three interceptions. the division-leading birds improved to 5-1. next up, monday night football against washington at the linc on october 23rd. happening now, the search for an escaped prisoner in philadelphia. authorities say alex alvarado was in their custody at temple university hospital before he took off yesterday afternoon. he has a lengthy criminal history. police say he was recently arrested for stealing a car and for a gun violation. questions remain about the timeline of the events during the las vegas shooting massacre, and it is now a difference between minutes and seconds. according to u.s. officials, the mandalay bay hotel waited to call police after stephen paddock fired shots at one of its security guards. the official claims that police were not called until six minutes later when paddock started firing into the crowd below, killing 58 and injuring hundreds.
the hotel's owner is disputing the claim. mgm resort says the shootings happened at the same time or within 40 seconds after the guard called for help. the casino company says police were in the building at the time and responded immediately to the shooter's floor. last night country singer jason aldean performed at his first public concert since the massacre. coming up in 15 minutes, we'll hear his message to fans. philadelphia is facing an ultimatum from the federal government. change the sanctuary city status or risk losing funding from washington. that word came from the justice department yesterday. the dodge claims the city -- the doj claims the city is breaking the law. the mayor says philadelphia is following the law by sending this message to immigrants -- >> we're going to protect them. we're going to follow the law and listen to what the judiciary tells us, but we are not going to abandon them. >> yesterday the mayor added he
will not be intimidated by the federal government. sanctuary cities, by the way, are local governments that limit police cooperation with federal immigration authorities. 6:05. a cry for more help. people in the caribbean are stn still suffering after the -- are still suffering after the federal hurricanes. yesterday the president threatened to pull federal resources out of puerto rico. 84% still don't have power after hurricane maria. more than one-third don't have running water. only 8% of the roads are passable. yesterday the acting homeland security secretary made a third trip to puerto rico. elaine duke was there to oversee the distribution of hurricane aid and assess the response effort. the u.s. virgin islands are also in dire need of help. sarah hess and her husband live on st. thomas but evacuated to her family's home in south jersey when hurricane irma made landfall.
you see the impact of the storm on their house in the tropics. they took this video. the virgin islands' official facebook page said yesterday that it was the last day fema was handing out emergency food and water. hess tells us the island needs more attention. >> i can only imagine the desperation and hopelessness that people will feel. i mean, it's -- talk about kicking somebody when they're down. there's a sentiment of we don't want to be forgotten. we don't want to be lost. >> sarah says it will be at at least three months before she and her husband can return to st. thomas. 6:06 on this friday. about 57 degrees outside the nbc10 studios. here is a live look over center city. a bit of a breezy morning out there. >> yeah, you see the flags there. i think it might be breezy throughout the day. let's get details from meteorologist krystal klei and the most accurate weather forecast. >> breezy today, not as windy as yesterday, though. everything today is a lighter version of what we saw yesterday. we can still see light rain in today's forecast. it's going to be isolated or spotty in nature.
we'll continue that into saturday. 60s today, but then a weekend warming trend. it's a serious one. from 60s to 70s to spots in the 80s by sunday. feels like summer again. here's the radar and satellite. a nice, wide view showing us the clouds are spilling in across the area. they're going from to stick today. we'll continue with mostly cloudy conditions. we also see the speckles of green down south. that is some light rain trying to make it to the ground or over the ocean. a few spotty showers are possible especially over delaware and south jersey today. even farther into pennsylvania, too. how about our planners. we'll go to philadelphia first. 57 degrees for the current temperature. the time this morning is 6:07 a.m. we'll be at 60 at 10:00 a.m. then around 65 by 2:00 to 4:00. the temperature will peak right in the mid to upper 60s for the official highs today. look at the winds, that's the difference.
instead of 15 to 20 miles per hour, 10 to 15. breezy out there. at the jersey shore, not as windy there. although again, breezy. winds sustaining around 15. 63 currently. the upper 60s for high temperatures today at the shore. and we'll finish off here in new jersey. right now, we're at 55 degrees. winds at ten miles per hour. by your lunch hour, we should get into the low to mid 60s. pretty much where we'll stay in the afternoon. i think the forecast highs will cap in the mid 60s with winds around seven miles per hour. again, coming from the east, keeping temperatures low. those winds, they shift as we go into the weekend. we'll talk about the warmup coming up. 6:08. minutes ago i tweeted to followers @vaisicahama. the detour is 70 miles.

pilots risked their lives to rescue a family of five surrounded by sapphire. -- by fire. a pennsylvania woman and her family we've been telling you about who were freed during a rescue in afghanistan have just left pakistan. the taliban captured the couple while they were hiking in 2012. caitlyn coleman, her husband joshua boyle, and their children, were rescued by pakistani forces wednesday nights. coleman is originally from stewartstown in york county. the family of the husband says they are relieved. >> for the first time in five years we got to hear his voice. it was amazing. >> the pakistani military were able to pull off the rescue thanks to a tip from u.s. intelligence. the family is asking for privacy. a marine veteran on a mission to run 31 marathons in 31 cities in 31 days will take his journey through philadelphia today. rob jones is his name. and he lost both legs when he stopped on a bum in afghanistan.

to the south. and the rotation wraps this way. kind of a funnel effect brings a nice onshore flow. it will be sea breezy. we're at the in between now. not stormy today but not perfectly sunny either. we keep with the clouds. temperatures actually will just be average for this time of year today. although it sounds cool. this is typical. 68 in center city. 66 for summerton. lansdale. i think there will be more low 60s over the suburbs, lehigh valley, berks county. mid 60s are possible. in new jersey, hammondton up to 67. upper 60s for the jersey shore. that ocean influence, onshore flow, keeps the temperatures close to the ocean temperature which happens to be at 67. and spot showers are possible. a little isolated shower over southern delaware also likely today. it would be light, spotty in nature. 69 rehoboth beach today. here's the hour-by-hour model to show you what i was talking
about. sprinkles at 2:30 in the afternoon. notice the light green. some of this might not make it to the ground because it will be so light. the models are gracious with the scattered showers extending so far north even into this evening. this is at 9:00. if you have plans, for most part you're fine. you may want to snag the umbrella if you have the perfect hairstyle and don't want to ruin it. a sprinkle is possible tonight. even into tomorrow morning. this is at 8:00 a.m. a shower here or there. scattered showers south through 4:00. the good news, it dies into the overnight which means sunday will look better off. here's the weekend forecast. saturday, 76 in philly. 82 on sunday. many spots getting to 80 like new jersey and delaware by sunday. sunday's looking more dry. a mix of clouds and sun starting cloudier, more sunny in the afternoon. if you have plans for sunday, i'll be at dilworthtown wine festival. the event is called crushing cancer. i'll be there. 80 at 2:00.

the president says he will end payments to insurers that help lower income americans afford health insurance premiums. this all comes after yesterday's executive order that changes mandates to the affordable care act. the president says it will bring affordable health care to millions of people. democrats disagree. nbc10's matt delucia is live in our digital operations center following the fallout. fill us in here, matt. >> reporter: the white house is defending this decision. the democrats have condemned this as a spiteful act that would hike premiums. we're talking about the cost-sharing reduction payments. it reimburses your insurance company for in return lowering your out-of-pocket costs. the white house says it cannot lawfully make the payments. the cost sharing helps nearly six million people, mainly people are lower incomes. the president was considering cutting off payments in order to increase pressure on lawmakers to repeal obamacare, the
affordable care act. this may move have happened while you're sleeping. a lot of folks waking up to the news. we talked with a couple of people in philadelphia to get their thoughts. >> the people who are low income and whatever and can't pay for insurance, what are they supposed to do? it's a sad situation. it is. >> lots of new mothers having babies. the ones who aren't work, they don't go to the doctor. then it's affecting their entire family. >> reporter: the president said this on twitter, "the democrats' obamacare is imploding. massive subsidy payments to their pet insurance companies have stopped. dems should call me to fix." insurers have already submitted their premiums for 2018. in many cases, they raised rates on the assumption that the cost-sharing reduction payments would be cut off. live in the digital operations center, matt delucia, nbc10 news. today we're expecting president trump to announce that
